PMID:  23522162     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
The use of rigid endobronchial forceps has been described for the percutaneous retrieval of tip-embedded retrievable inferior vena cava filters, especially when retrieval with the use of traditional devices has failed. The present report describes retrieval of a tip-embedded retrievable filter from the superior vena cava with the use of this technique.
